COSATU mourns the death of Serge Mokonyane
4 April 2019
The Congress of South African Trade Unions mourns the death of Comrade Serge Mokonyane, who was also the husband of Minister Nomvula Mokonyane. We send our heartfelt condolences to his family, colleagues and friends.
Cde Serge Mokonyane was an activist in his own right and served the working class as a trade unionist at a time when there was a high price to pay as an activist under apartheid. He is the former national organiser of Ccawusa the present day Saccawu and was also active in the UDF. We shall remain forever grateful to him for his sacrifices and his immense contribution to the formation of the trade union movement in the country.
We send our prayers to Minister Nomvula Mokonyane and her family. Words cannot express the sympathy we feel at this loss for the Mokonyane family and the entire mass movement.
We dip our revolutionary banner in salute of this revolutionary. He will be greatly missed.
